Weren't we able to fit 42 sacks on the last order?

Maybe. :) They say one thing for sacks, then another thing for total weight. Won't really know till we try to place the order, but I'm erring on the side of caution.

2 sacks

Postby eMan » Fri May 07, 2010 2:30 pm

I'd like 2 sacks

BD-VIEN Vienna
BZ-WHT Pale Wheat

Sorry I didn't post last night or this morning. When I got off at work, I just crashed. Thanks for waiting. Just let me know where to pay, and I'll be there with my application fee as well. :)

Also, if you suggest an alternative for these grains, it would be most appreciated.

Looks like you're either brewing Flanders Red or some sort of Hefeweizen.

Hey aleguy,

Just curious what about the malt made you unhappy? I also purchased some Bairds MO from the last grain buy, and I'm reasonable happy with the quality. My malt definitely has a bread-y quality, reminiscent of biscuit malt. From what I understand, this is what I should expect from a floor malted MO malt? I'm guessing that either your malt doesn't have this flavor, or that it is somehow lacking when compared to MO from other maltsters? This is the first time I've used Maris Otter, so I'm just wondering if I'm missing something.

Cheers,
Dave

It's not their Maris Otter that I'm unhappy with. It's their Pale Ale malt. Though I wouldn't risk their MO either after this. Baird's PA is lifeless and gray. It has no malt aroma or flavor when brewed, when compared to TF's Pearl malt. I might as well have bought Canadian 2-row. Even that has more flavor.

Ok guys, sorry for this format, but I'm still down in Venice, and I don't have my email setup right on the work laptops here. The grain is ordered, and is expected to be in Baton Rouge by Monday or Tuesday. That means we can pick it up any time after it arrives. We will see what the weather does, and if anyone wants to take a ride, we can use some help loading up 1400+ lbs of grain on and off the trailer.

I need to collect cash from everyone before then because I need to bring cash to the Redstick crew as usual.

We filled the pallet, so the shipping cost came out to $4.68 per sack. If you need it broken down, or its not what you expected, send me an email, and I will send you the details I have.

Totals are below for each (listed in order of posting)

Mob Barley - $124.30
Charlie - $43.82
0006 - $78.82
Jimmiec - $131.93
Guitarlord - $83.10
BigAle - $82.23
Yeastmeister - $87.63
Redtail - $68.34
Timwhite77 - $153.24
ZeeBoz - $114.65
Eman - $72.76

I'll be back sometime Sunday. Edited to correct Guitarlord and jimmiec's sack split. As usual, I am also going to request anyone who feels like it to donate a few extra bucks to the cause to help pay for my gas for going to go get the grains.

I will be happy to help. But I will not be available Thursday through Saturday, so it will have to be Tuesday or Wednesday for me.

What day and time are you planning to go get the grain. Keith and I can come help if it's after 2:30. The only day I am not free is on Wednesday.

Day is up in the air. It depends on 2 things, when the grain actually gets there, and the weather. We need to wait for a no rain day.

yeastmeister, do you have a paypal account? I can transfer money to the account quickly, otherwise I'll have to mail it.

Pickup

Postby eMan » Sun May 16, 2010 1:48 pm

I'm available in the afternoon at around 4p or so. Ring me up. Also, I might be in Baton Rouge this weekend. If it takes until like Friday to pick up the grain, I'll probably drive separate and meet up to load the grain.
